so.. i quietly made it to the level X (ten). site stats show only 351 steamgifts member have level ten, so now i'm one of them :)

it took me couple of years, as i was not in a hurry to get there, 1400+ something games given away and 104 blacklists honestly earned :) yeah, most of them were years ago, when i was stupid and made a giveaway of Dead Island Epidemic open beta :)) I didn't read the rules, but lets be honest, who ever read the rules?

I got several bans for dublicate keys (i didn't follow, and steamgifts was simpler and had no functions it has nowadays) so it took another effort to correct these mistakes; for not activating keys in time (though being several countries away from my steamgifts account was the easiest mistake to correct), even for "abusing the system" - though it was not intentional, and this is the very place to say thanks to steamgifts support team and moderators, who really help a lot, and helped me a lot - just imagine - once i had a winner that was changing the won game from "received" to "not received" couple of times! without proper help of site support, i think, i would have just been banned forever somewhere on level 2 ))))

But, finally, every step of that way was worth it! I won 300+ great games, met great people, i can boast i have 200+ whitelists and a proud membership in couple of closed groups, and i had lots of fun all these years - making giveaways, winning games, solving (or, finally, not solving) insane puzzles, getting the freshest gaming news, giveaways, and this is the very place to say thank you to the community - you all are making this site great. thank you. after all, it were you to win all these games to add to my cv :)))

so, as a part of this celebration, i'm cleaning my black list, accepting invites for friendship (not from spam bots), until the current steam's limit, and invites to groups, even the ratio based ones - i swear i'm not the person to take a key and ran away, i will always find something sweet to give back.

That's ten times my modest number of giveaways, almost to the dot. I doubt I have the endurance to get there!

Hello.

I will ask you to remove curator link. It is fine to add your social media / curator / groups to giveaway description, but not to post it in the forums.

Agree, the last levels are the hardest. I was at 9.99 for a while going back and forth before I finally manage to get to level 10 permanently :)

Welcome to SG Level 10!™

Um... they did tell you about the Level 10 entry requirements, right? (It's no big deal, you just have to film yourself breakdancing while wearing a full suit of armor and chanting the SG Level 10 Song™).

I would send you a friend request, but I'm a spam bot and apparently you're prejudiced against my kind.
